Back Back Back Back….Gone!

By Scott Allen

That's four backs for the Dbacks....as in four homers....in a row!

Adam Laroche, Miguel Montero, Mark Reynolds, Stephen Drew....back-to-back-to-back-to-back homers in the fourth inning tonight.  It breaks a franchise record for consecutive homers.  Chris Young just missed a fifth homer three batters later.

Say what you want about this team, however, power has been the name of the game this season for the Dbacks and tonight is certainly no exception.  Reynolds homer was his team-leading 26th of the season.  Regardless of all his strikeouts, the sight of him hitting a long ball is quite something to see.

Milwaukee Brewers Dave Bush, who gave up all four homers, is only the fourth pitcher to ever give up four in a row.

Why stop there though?  Let's get four more!!  Go Dbacks!
